Ex-Stamford employee gives up boat in plea agreement

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) The city of Stamford's former marina director has agreed to give up his boat as compensation for the $60,000 he's accused of stealing from the city.

The Stamford Advocate reports that forfeiting the 26-foot boat was part of the agreement that also spared 43-year-old Sean Elumba prison time in exchange for a guilty plea to a first-degree larceny charge. Elumba received an eight-year suspended sentence and four years of probation.

His attorney said giving up the boat was ``true recognition of his heartfelt remorse and desire to make full restorative efforts'' to the city.

Elumba was charged with using a city-issued credit card to make personal purchases, including fishing supplies, sunglasses, coolers, a gas grill, a global positioning map, and clothing. His attorney blamed his client's actions on drug addiction.
